If you live in Switzerland, you might be wondering which clothing brands are doing better for people, the planet, and animals. We compiled this list of 8 more sustainable Swiss clothing brands, all rated “Good” or “Great” using our first-class methodology.

Swiss brands changing the industry

We get it. Shopping more sustainably can be like wading through murky waters. “How do I know that what a brand claims is true? Is my scepticism a clear sign of greenwashing or just a product of years of disillusionment with the fashion industry?” While it may be a mix of both, that’s where we come in—ready to probe, prod, and sift through the gunk. Along the journey, we hope to highlight some brands that are doing the thing, genuinely making a difference in our lives, the Earth’s, and the lives of the creatures that walk the planet with us.

What makes a better brand?

Simply put, a responsible brand makes sure it positively impacts on people, the planet, and animals.

It ensures its workers are treated fairly across the supply chain. This includes policies and practices on child labour, forced labour, worker safety, the right to join a union, and payment of a living wage.

A better brand also cares about its use of resources and energy, reducing its carbon emissions, impact on our waterways, as well as using and disposing of chemicals safely.

Finally, it uses no or very few animal products, like wool, leather, fur, angora, down feather, shearling, karakul, and exotic animal skin and hair. Ideally, the brand is 100% vegan.

So if you live in Switzerland or want to support Swiss fashion labels, you might wonder which clothing brands are doing better. We know how you feel, which is why we compiled this list of “Good” or “Great” rated fashion brands either based or produced in Switzerland.
